Inspired by film noir and vintage lingerie, Ouvrez La Porte's designer Karen LaPorte, chooses seduction over sexy, alluring over loud. Wearing an Ouvrez La Porte silk dress can make one feel at once both demure and sensual . This retro sensibility leaves something to the imagination and let's the woman wearing it shine through.
Silk charmeuse is often combined with lace or chiffon for this glamorous effect. One small cocktail worthy collection is created each year and sewn by Karen herself in her Brooklyn studio, factory free.
